Using Inverters

Inverters can be crucial in times of emergency, so it should be used when power needs to be converted. It works by converting direct current power from a battery bank to true sinusoidal alternating current. The inverter features adjustable lumen output and includes automatic monthly or annual system discharging. The system shall transfer in less than 1.0 second to reliably back up lighting fixtures without loss of illumination and operate any and all connected lighting fixtures at full lumen output during the complete 90-minute discharge cycle.
